If Forgebane came with Armiger's, and GW even advertises Armigers are being Adeptus Mechanicus... Why aren't Armigers in the Codex? I assume that they aren't actually Adeptus Mechanicus units then, and that if you use them you're making a soup army.

They are still part of the Adeptus Mechanicus due to loyalty and can be taken without violating any single faction rulings.

It literally changes depending on who is drawing them. Their earliest art had them with extremely long, slanted eyes. Sometimes completely black, sometimes with regular pupils and shit. Then people started drawing them with mostly regularly eyes, and that was the prevailing fashion and still is. I've never heard of them being drawn with white eyes though. So this is just another piece of fluff that'll change with the whim of whoever is drawing/writing. I honestly can't fucking understand why GW doesn't have internal model sheets.

in the early days of 40k Eldar were literally just Space Elves (for instance, see this early catalogue image) and in their artwork in the 2nd edition and 3rd edition rulebooks they clearly have conventionally elfin appearances - and eyes with pupils. During the 2000s though GW was feeling something of a cultural cringe and an intellectual inferiority complex that 40k was "just fantasy in space" and they tried to emphasise xenos as having "unknowable inscrutable alien mindset completely divorced from human ways from thinking" to make it seem more sophisticated. For instance, there's the scene in the Eisenhorn books where they attack a Saruthi world and there's a dogged insistence at the weird incomprehensible-to-humans behaviour of the creatures and the strange geometry of their planet.

I remember meeting Warwick Kinrade at the Forge World stand at a Games Day around that time and I asked him when we'd get a xenos-vs-xenos Imperial Armour book which didn't need to include the Imperium. He grimaced at me as if this was a question he got asked far too much and sighed that he couldn't do that because you couldn't given alien minds values that could be comprehensible as a reason to fight an explain it on the page in terms of human logic. I replied to him that if aliens could find a reason to fight a human they'd have the same reason to attack another alien, and he shrugged and moved on.

Anyway, a lot of the art of Eldar that look like >>72053724
stem from that pretentious period, although nowadays I think it's seesawed back to the less self-conscious 'space elves' style, although it still varies significantly according to the artist.

No, but I have seen a few on Bolter and Chainsword. They always split up the major Marine chapters in them though (and then one for homebrew).

Ghostkeels tend to be better as a bulky distraction unit. Vior'la will help with mobility a little, but only really means it'll be able to fire it's secondary guns when it's booking it.

I would base it somewhat on what else your list has, but unless you're really hurting for anti-tank, go for the Ion, and then use the ability to advance without penalty in case you need to reposition. Burst Cannons and Fusion will be the obvious choices in that regard, though burst cannons are generally better on a Ghostkeel both due to cost and due to fusion range being very dangerous for a suit whose defenses often vanish in closer ranges

Some Bile autism.

>The old man [a low-caste serf of Fabius' family] had taught him much, about the arts of meat and blade. How to stretch muscle and reshape bone, for the sheer joy of creation. How to dull pain, and increase pleasure, so that his creations did not writhe unnecessarily beneath the knife. The memories flowed strongly now. Vivid and sharp. Just like the old man’s knives.

>Using these lessons, Fabius had trained a selection of white mice to dance and to duel, for the amusement of his parents. Dressed in minuscule finery, they mimicked the blood-feuds of the great houses of Europa. Tiny blades clicked in a skilful rhythm as he practised his latest routine. One mouse drew blood on another, and the wounded rodent squealed and launched itself at its attacker, teeth bared. Even then, he felt the flash of frustration and anguish as his creations tore each other apart in a bestial frenzy. No matter how much he screamed, or activated the tiny control nodes he’d implanted in them, they would not heed him.

>And so, they’d died. Again and again. Though he’d shed few tears, and only in private, he had been inconsolable. Only the old man had thought to even attempt it. Then, what else could one expect of such a lowborn creature?

Ideally it should, since the stealth penalties it has don't work as well in close ranges, and the stealth fields don't help at all in close combat. But the Vior'la and Target Lock rules overlap in how they apply to Assault weapons. The Target Lock is still probably your best option for it.

Lawsuits and third party bitz makers. So now units only get the options their models come with.

The only reason it was ever any different is because they sold seperate stuff in blister packs, which is why you could customise your own loadout for stuff like HQ units.

Marines in particular had tons of wargear to choose from, which is why their current lineup is so bloated with variations of the same unit, but wearing Terminator armour, or with a jump pack, etc. You used to just pick that as wargear for the same datasheet. Hence why Primaris is all mono-loadout.

>>Orks do not research or develop technology, and appear to innately know how to cobble together weapons, armour, and vehicles from whatever they find. These ramshackle devices work to terrifying effect in the hands of an Ork, but those that have been examined after a battle disintegrate into the nonfunctional piles of scrap they appear to be. This has led to the radical, often disputed, xenobiologist viewpoint that Orks possess gestalt psychic abilities — their impossibly constructed guns fire simply because Orks think they should, and their crumbling vehicles rocket forward because they believe they ought to go faster after a fresh coat of red paint.

I see you're trying to max out on squads, although you should know that Penitent Engines can also be made up as Mortifiers which are a separate unit.

That said, you probably want to ensure all your melee chaff has at least a little support. Rules-wise a Missionary or Preacher can help a lot due to giving out bonus attacks to nearby units, which is good for Repentia and Flagellant blobs.

Another note is that Repentia can travel in Rhinos, which can help deliver them to durable targets which they excel at chopping. Some long-range firepower wouldn't be amiss, but Mortifiers can take Heavy Bolters and still fit in theme.

You probably want to run them as the Order of the Bloody Rose. It only really applies to the Repentia, but it gives them even more attacks, so that's a plus.

It might just be a matter of one hand of corporate not knowing what the other is doing. Somebody writing rules might have gotten a hastily written memo from some guy in legal telling them to avoid giving rules to anything without a model, and then somebody took that to mean that they had to scrap any codex unit that wasn't 100% WYSWYG, but then that same memo didn't get passed along to anyone making specialist games.

GW could probably kill off a lot of the 3rd party market if they sold weapon options for dirt cheap themselves. Nobody is going to be digging around random websites for Meltorz Gunz if GW actually had a way to get a squad's worth for a few bucks.

Go for the helmets. Faces can be hard enough if you're just starting out. Other than that, you'll probably want to try and find some basic painting tutorials if you're super new, and some more advanced ones if you plan on going for black or white as one of your major colors. Their models are fairly detailed in some spots, which can be a hurdle.

Listbuilding-wise they are more limited in options compared to some armies. They tend to lack long-ranged firepower, and rely on short-ranged melta or melee units for a lot of their baseline anti-tank. If you're playing more casually, they'll fair well enough to keep up, especially in smaller games, but in more competitive scenes they become more reliant on specific lists or allies to patch up weaknesses.

Deathwatch don't get anything. When it came time to reinvent them for 8e, instead of giving them cool mixed formations of primaris and manlets, like happened a lot in early 8e lore, they just kept everything as is and tacked on a primaris unit following the blueprint of the regular kill team. So you're telling me the Deathwatch picks the best of the best to mix into unique kill teams that make use of every squad members unique experience and skills, unless you're too tall then you go in the retard squad?
Remember when Deathwatch got their own codex it was literally just a way to put another power armored army out, changing them just enough so that you couldn't outright convert them from the existing models without missing out on the small handful of unique shit they actually had. Their only schtick then was rerolls against everything, now that EVERYONE gets rerolls they're perhaps the blandest army in the game. GW never considered Deathwatch to be one of their main lineup from the very start, the were just a quick low effort cash injection like Ynnari or any of the AoS mini factions that have been released with zero support.

base size dictates the unit, although disadvantage is fine. So for instance if you're putting a tank on a base, it would have to be smaller or the same size as the tank.

If you're going to a tournament it might be part of the tournament rules, and if you model for advantage with bases (i.e smaller bases to get more guys in combat, or larger bases to increase aura radius/distance rolls) then you ARE being a dick. But otherwise, yeah, there are literally no rules.

I am categorically against, but he doesn’t want to listen to me, he says that I’m a filthy chaos player (I stand for the NL) and therefore I can’t understand how significant this “mark” will be for him.
And here the problem is not so much that I don’t like tattooed buttocks, just my boyfriend's ass really doesn’t look like a muscular rump of the canonical Fist. At his cute butt a squeezed hand in a circle will look like ... unaesthetically, or something like this.

oh shit yeah I'll teach you.
for the color, this works with more than just yellow. the trick is priming black. you then have to put thin coats of a duller/ darker version of the color you want over the skin. almost brush it over. you don't want to get in every crack and crevice, as the black undercoat will do the job for you. let the coat dry before putting another layer on (use a desk fan!) then drybrush with the actual color you want, then add details/ highlight. let dry. after, add a wash. i used nuln oil.

for the shell, use a bone color over black. let dry, add another layer. then i drybrushed folkart white pearl over it. i then washed it with nuln oil. want me to explain how i did the bases?

At that point, you'll probably want to start dabbling in other Orders or in non-Sisters ministorum units. Some Repentia or Arco-Flagellants would give you serious melee punch.

I generally run a battalion of Valorous Heart and a Vanguard of Bloody Rose

8th is a shitty edition because it’s just quantity over quality and the game boils down to units blasting units off the table with minimal or no reaction. from direct firing lanes or 9” deepstrike charges. Dense terrain and smaller points definitely go a long way to make it work better. I play 500 pts cities of death and have a lot of fun. Necromunda is a true small scale skirmish game and is fuckin great to play. Kill team is garbage. Heralds of Ruin is fanmade and poorly balanced but it is the proper skirmish scale 40k that can be played as long as it’s without cheesemongers

>People always go on about the female penitent engine pilot but the male one was posed the best imo.
yeah the male one was better, but I think the plastic update is much better than that one anyway. I liked the female one because the hood is cool and also has the weaponised t-posing for memes.
>I'd imagine them in more medieval or religious looking clothing, with tons more scrolls and things covering them, sort of like Empire flagellants.
have you looked at them recently? They do have more shackles and paper than you're remembering. I think any more than they already have would be overdesigned, but that's only my opinion.

There are some instances of cool Iron Hands but when you're so retarded that you make the Iron Warriors seem well adjusted you know you have a problem.

>They have some pieces of cool background and , although it's not obvious, strong masochistic tendencies.

You could argue the same thing for all spacemarines. Becoming a space marine alone is downright painful, most have some eagerness for pain as it pertains to battle which gets their willies hard and lore is a dime a dozen that changes every year or so.

But what are you playing at the end of the day? GW's most boring faction, there is nothing more basic bitch than space marines. GET BETTER TASTE.

>The Iron Hands got one of his arms and (typical of the entire autistic lot of them) hooked the hand up to a mannequin and claimed Ferrus was still alive
I mean it was because they dont like Meduson that much, but shit still kind a hillarious. Vulkan went ape shit on the mannequin just make things extra hillarious.

I genuinely hope we don't get new guard sculpts.
I don't want my old guardsmen to look like midgets compared to new ones.

Any of you guys use Tabletop Sim to play? I'm forced to due to the bat soup and since I cant get new models right now because of it (I dont have a full army yet).

Honestly I'm not sure why the Iron Hands bother recruiting marines if they've got a mountain of marine-tier cyberlimbs lying around. You'd think they could have quite a lot of 'combat servitors' that are effectively S4 T4 Stormtroopers by just rotating their cyberarms through a series of Goliath Gangers
